  Summary  

Patrick Raymond Fugit is an American actor best known for his debut performance in the lead role of Cameron Crowe's film Almost Famous.

  Biography  

 career
Making his acting debut in a school production while in the seventh grade , Fugit pursued an acting career and landed guest roles on episodes of Promised Land and Touched By an Angel in 1998. That same year he was a meal for hungry insects in the Fox TV movie Legion of Fire: Killer Ants. Work in the more mild-mannered Beyond the Prairie: The True Story of Laura Ingalls Wilder followed in 2000.

Fugit became much more widely known when he was cast in the starring role in Cameron Crowe's Almost Famous, playing a young rock-fan-turned-reporter. He later claimed that his knowledge of 1970s rock music was nil ("I actually thought Led Zeppelin was one person"). Fugit's performance was widely praised. Before Almost Famous was released, he auditioned for the title role in Richard Kelly's Donnie Darko. The role eventually went to Jake Gyllenhaal.

Fugit later played a sweetly geeky, aspiring comic book artist in White Oleander and a naive drug addict in the indie dark comedy Spun . His next film, Saved! , was a satirical look at the religious right in high school. Fugit played the cool young pastor's skateboarding son and love interest to a pregnant, once-popular teen who must re-evaluate her moral positions.

In 2005, he co-starred in The Amateurs, an independent comedy about a sleepy town that comes together to film a porno. In the 2006 film, Bickford Shmeckler's Cool Ideas, his love interest was Olivia Wilde of the TV show House M.D., where Fugit had a guest star appearance. In 2007, he co-starred with Shannyn Sossamon in Wristcutters: A Love Story.

Fugit portrayed the role of a snake boy, Evra Von, in the movie Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant, released on October 23, 2009.

In November 2010, Fugit signed on to Cameron Crowe's adaptation of Benjamin Mee's We Bought a Zoo, which was released in December 2011.

 personal life
Fugit was born in Salt Lake City, Utah. His mother, Jan Clark-Fugit, is a dance teacher, and his father, Bruce Fugit, is an electrical engineer. He is of part Irish ancestry and has a younger sister, Jocelyn, and a younger brother, Colin. Fugit was diagnosed with ADHD in high school, which led to problems with teachers and authority figures.

Fugit has been an avid skateboarder since he was 15. In the film Saved!, the character of Patrick was originally supposed to be a surfer. But when Fugit was cast, the character was changed to a skateboarder because of Fugit's skateboarding experience.

His last name means 'he flees' in Latin.

Patrick formed the Salt Lake City band "Mushman" with best friend David Fetzer, by "accident". The band can best be described as a blend of folk and rock. Patrick plays the guitar and sometimes sings. He is also studying flamenco guitar, which he can be heard playing on the Cavedoll song "MAYDAY".

He is in a relationship with actress and professional dancer Liberty Cordova and is friends with Steve Berra, Scarlett Johansson and Tao Ruspoli.
